We have an abundance of fabulous tomatoes this week, especially truss, Tomberry tomatoes and yellow snacking tomatoes. The hot weather has led to lower prices especially in the cauliflower, zucchini and broccoli categories. Beans, beanettes, leeks and rhubarb are all easing as well. Mushrooms and rhubarb continues to be very good value and we are enjoying a decent price fall in corn.
Berries and mangoes continue to be a little undersupplied. Quality cherries have had a little more rain than is ideal so it may be mid next week before supply returns to normal. Grapes, both red and white are still coming from Queensland. Normally I don’t get too excited about these early Queensland grapes however this year, they are quite a decent product and fairly priced. Australian Valencia oranges, most melons and bananas are all excellent quality and well supplied. The peaches and nectarines available this week are genuinely worth eating and will get better every week. With the hot weather this week, I don’t think you can go past the excellent quality, well priced seedless melon now in store.
